"Success is in the journey, not the destination; we are all learners"

Cultural Capital Passport Programme

At Robin Hood Primary School, our aim is for our children to join us on a learning journey, which will equip them for their future. We want our children to leave us at Year 6 knowing how to be good citizens, have high aspirations, to be a resilient learner and have high levels of enquiry skills. Cultural capital is the essential knowledge that children need to prepare them for their future success. It is about giving children the best possible start to their early education.

It is important to recognise that everyone has cultural capital – knowledge, skills and behaviours – and that these accumulate over time through many different experiences and opportunities. Cultural capital is understood to contribute to success in life, for example, being able to perform well in school, knowing how to talk in different social groups or societies, accessing higher education and being successful in work or a career. Cultural Capital is not something that is ‘given’ or ‘taught’. It is about culture, language, traditions and experiences.

At Robin Hood all children take part in the Cultural Capital Passport Programme. Our programme includes the themes of; 

  • Arts and Culture

  • Appreciation of Nature

  • Local Community Links

  • Physical and Practical Skills

  • Educational Visits

As the children travel through school, they will embark on their learning journey, receiving stamps in their cultural capital passports for each experience they take part in. We aim for them to be ready to be world citizens by the time they leave year 6!
